 Address: Moscow, the Main Botanical Garden of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Metro station: Vladykino

In 1986, the landscape exhibition "Japanese Garden" was opened on the territory of the Main Botanical Garden in Moscow. The project was attended by experts from Japan - landscape designer Nakajima, architect Adachi, and a construction company "Vatana-be-Tomi." Financial support for the project was provided by the Japanese Embassy in Russia.

Japanese Garden

The result of the innovation in the botanical complex exceeded all expectations, and now it is possible to get acquainted with the views of the Japanese beauties of nature in Russia.  A real corner of Japan with a huge number of small waterfalls, and ponds with islets appeared in Moscow. There are pavilions made in the Japanese architectural style, stone lanterns, and multi-tiered pagodas - it makes people feel, regardless of their nationality, that they can find harmony between nature and human activity. This sensible thought always appears after visiting even a small but real Japanese garden. And in Moscow, the botanical zone, decorated by the Japanese, is rather huge. The laconic and seemingly simple structure of the green zone, in fact, is not easily achieved. There are  more than a hundred species of various plants in the botanical exhibition: world famous sakura, mono maple, rhododendron, David's elm and other plants.

Best time to visit

Many Muscovites ask the question, when is the best time to visit a Japanese garden in order to experience  all its beauty? Every Japanese knows that a good park is charming at any time of the year in the morning, noon and evening. In March, spring yellow forsythia and bluish brunners begin to bloom.

In April and May, everyone wants to admire the famous cherry blossoms, which has become a symbol of Japan. As soon as it begins to bloom, rhododendron and apricot flowers appear. 

At the beginning of summer, the irises familiar to Russians also bloom, followed by the flowering relay that passes to silver lavender and pink spirea flowers. Until late autumn, the blooming petals of the Kuril tea, reminding of small golden coins, adorn green bushes.

Late autumn not only does not diminish the charm, but makes the place even more beautiful. Covered with autumn leaves of maple trees, purple rhododendrons create a ghostly illusion of re-flowering. In winter, the Japanese park is thoughtfully deserted and gently washed out with white snow colors. In every Japanese garden there is a special lantern, designed for admiring the snow unhurriedly.

The Japanese are confident that nature has the answers to all life questions. In order to solve any problem or just relax, you should come, think, look at the plants, stones and water, which have the power, unknown to men. All those who are interested in the traditions of Japan, those who want to understand this distinctive people with  their history and their own view of the world better, should definitely come to the "Japanese Garden" exhibition in the  Botanical Garden.
